Kildare SHC: Moloney on fire for holders
11 October 2010
Five points from Mark Moloney proved decisive as Celbridge edged out Coill Dubh to retain their Kildare SHC title at Newbridge.
Coill Dubh 1-8
Celbridge led by 0-5 to 0-4 at the end of an entertaining first quarter, but scores weren't as plentiful in the second quarter as Celbridge took a 0-7 to 0-6 lead into the break.
The Dublin-border side looked to have finally shaken off their opponents' challenge when Tony Murphy pointed to give them a 0-9 to 0-6 lead after 42 minutes. But Coill Dubh got themselves back into it thanks to a Chris Byrne goal four minutes later and it took two late points from man of the match Moloney to seal Celbridge's success.
